I use huwaei E173 n on every airtel GFN off, they said 3G plan is on my # yet Iam unable to use 3G just edge. what’d the prob?

As you said your Airtel number have Airtel 3G offer since you bought Airtel SIM with Data card.But you are saying that you are able to use EDGE instead of 3G.IF you couldn’t use 3G then there may be two problems.Solution for them is Kindly change your network mode into 3G mode from EDGE.If you already configured your Airtel USB modem in 3G mode then you may not be covered by Airtel 3G tower.Kindly call CC to ensure Airtel 3G signal is available in your area.

I’m a tourist in India; can I buy 3G sim? Can I buy it at Airport; if first answer is yes! Any advice.


Mani December 1, 2012 at 7:27 pm

Yes,you can but SIM card but its validity cannot be more than 3 Months. As per TRAI rules getting SIM card of any operator in India is not an easy task.Now a days even for Indian citizen it takes many days for Activation.So kindly visit nearest Telecom Showroom for further info.
